This book was my life in fifth grade so I apologize if this review is completely clouded with nostalgia, it's just that this book and all its characters are perfect and wonderful in every way. Cimorene, the delightfully pragmatic yet inventive protagonist of Dealing with Dragons, returns (not as the main character, which I think the official blurb of this book mistakenly implies, but the important thing is that she returns) in this story of a very harried king and a kidnapped dragon. I almost managed to forget exactly how much I like Mendenbar, so it's great to be reminded all over again! Patricia C. Wrede's characters have to be some of my favorites of all books ever. From magical kings biting off more than they can chew to princesses who study magical theory, from no-nonsense witches to flaky, academic magicians, from wannabe wicked uncles to female Dragon Kings... I could list every endearing play on cliche fantasy tropes in this book and it wouldn't capture half the series's charm. Mendenbar's (and to some extent Cimorene's) distaste for Princesses is somewhat annoying to sit through as an older reader, especially because Searching for Dragons isn't nearly as egalitarian in showing the utter foolishness of princes the way Dealing with Dragons made fun of both princes and princesses, but it's a minor detail within the enjoyment of the plot and characters. Basically, this book was never going to get less than five stars, because I adore it and I encourage everyone else to adore it also, because adoring this series is a lot of fun.
